We aim to give you the confidence to use library and information resources independently to enhance your academic experience and achievement.
What we can do
Offer help, advice, training, support and documentation to students and staff undertaking research, project work, essays and/or dissertations.
Contact the Academic Skills Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a 1-1 session - this may be conducted in person, via email, over the phone, or online via Skype. A typical session may include:
Appointments will generally last between 30 and 60 minutes, and will be initially provided up to 4 times per student, per academic year.
What we can't do
If you would like more information on skills such as academic writing, effective learning, note taking and presentation skills, please see the Academic Study Skills Centre. There is also advice for students with additional needs on the Disability and Learning Support site.
What we expect of you
Don't rely on Google or even Google Scholar! Findit@Bham is a great place to start looking for good quality academic resources.
